4 College Freshman

Academics: The professors take their position seriously, and it is obvious how much they care about their students. Homework is moderate, but do NOT get behind. You will regret it.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Being a social worker is definitely not for everyone, it is very rigorous and before you get accepted into the program you have to go through specific clearances. You have to reviewed by the entire social work faculty in order to make sure you are good for the job. I believe that everything you do as a student definitely prepares you for being a social worker in the real world. Every student is required to participate in a field trip where they will experience what it is like to be homeless and living in the Philadelphia area. The courses are very interactive, for instance the class I am taking now is called Social Work Experience and it is helping me understand every aspect of being a social worker, both positive and negative. Students are also required to do one day and four day placement at real agencies. Many students end up getting jobs at these agencies and quite a number of agencies specifically request for social workers from Cairn University. Most students who graduate get a job in the field right away.
